Exterior

The Arctic White exterior is in excellent condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a brilliant gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely; it has that solid Mercedes touch and feels like a vault door closing. The wheels are in great shape with a nice finish and no curb rash. The tires have about 90% tread ledt and are correctly sized 205/65R15. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There are some stone chip touch ups and other very small blemishes around the car that are too tiny so show up in the photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from about 5 feet away. As one can seen in the many photos of the underside, this 560SL is very clean underneath. We have also included specific photos of the rockers, lower front and rear quarter panels, and other areas on the car most prone to rust to show how nice it looks.

 

Interior

The Navy Blue interior of the 560SL looks absolutely fantastic. The seats are in excellent condition with no tears, rips, or split seams. The seat is not overly worn in the typical are on the driver's bolster where the drier gets in and out. Please note that these appear to be the original seats and skins, not some cheap aftermarket cover or replacement. The carpet looks terrific with no stains, rips, or holes. The original door panels look great with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The convertible soft top is in good shape with no rips or split seams, there is a very small spot worn through on both side windows in the soft-top. All of the gauges faces are crisp and the lenses are clear. The dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The wood trim looks nice overall with no fading; there is an area in the wood trim on the glove box that is cracked. This car has never been smoked in and there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever. The original radio is included with the car and pictured below.

The trunk is very clean and nicely detailed with the original spare tire and rim, jack, and tool kit with the correct Mercedes wrenches.

The excellent condition of this all original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this Mercedes has received throughout its life.


Mechanical

This 560SL appears to be in great mechanical condition; everything on the car works and it is ready to be enjoyed. There are some maintenance records included with the car along with a receipts from 3 months ago for over $1,500 from the Mercedes dealer in recent service. The previous owner has put over 250 miles on this car since October of last year. The engine starts right away every time, idles smooth, and runs great. It is an exceptional driver that feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 65mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts well, runs great, there are no strange noises or vibrations, and the car performs quite nice overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. It runs cool and does not overheat. Also, the engine bay is clean, nicely detailed, and correct as one can see from the photos.

Please note in the video that all of the warning lights work properly. They light up when the key is first turned on and then go off when the engine is started. There are no "check engine" or other warning lights that stay on. The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, indicators, wipers, and fan. All of the gauges work. The a/c works and blows cold. This Mercedes has lots of power with the 5.6 liter engine. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1989 560SL is in excellent condition and is a true bargain at our asking price. The market on for the R107 body style SL Mercedes is very strong right now, particularly for the 560SL's from 1987 to 1989 model years, with 1989 being the most desirable and most rare with only 8,251 units produced. This Mercedes is a great value and will only appreciate over time. Someone could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
